On July 2, 2015, Aetna Inc. ("Aetna") entered into a definitive agreement (as it may be amended, the "merger agreement") to acquire Humana Inc. ("Humana") in a
transaction (the "merger") valued at approximately $37 billion, based on the closing price of Aetna common shares on July 2, 2015, including the assumption of Humana
debt and Humana cash and cash equivalents. We intend to use the net proceeds of this offering, together with cash on hand at Aetna and Humana, and an approximately
$3.2 billion term loan that we expect to borrow at the time the merger is completed, to fund the cash portion of the purchase price of the merger. See "Use of Proceeds."
If the merger has not been completed by December 31, 2016 (or such later date to which the "End Date" under the merger agreement is extended by agreement between

Final Prospectus Supplement
Aetna and Humana) or if, prior to such date, the merger agreement is terminated, we must redeem all of the 2019 Notes, the 2021 Notes, the 2026 Notes, the 2036 Notes
and the 2046 Notes (collectively, the "Special Mandatory Redemption Notes") at a redemption price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Special
Mandatory Redemption Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the special mandatory redemption date (as defined herein). See "Description of the
Notes--Special Mandatory Redemption of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes." If the merger is not completed, we intend to use the net proceeds of the offering of
the Floating Rate Notes, the 2018 Notes and the 2023 Notes for general corporate purposes, including the possible payment of a termination fee under the merger
agreement and repayment of a portion of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes.
The Notes will be senior unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of our company and will rank equally with all of our other existing and future unsecured and
unsubordinated indebtedness, and will be structurally subordinated to certain indebtedness assumed in connection with our May 2013 acquisition of Coventry Health Care,
Inc. ("Coventry") and, upon closing of the merger, certain indebtedness assumed in connection with our acquisition of Humana. See "Description of the Notes."
The Notes will not be listed on any securities exchange. Currently, there is no public market for the Notes.

Investing in the Notes involves risks. See "Risk Factors" included or incorporated by reference herein, as described beginning on page S-7 of this
prospectus supplement.

Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or

There may also be other risks that we are unable to predict at the time a forward-looking statement is made or in the future. Although we believe
the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future events, results, levels of activity,
performance or achievements. Moreover, neither we nor any other person assumes responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of any of these
forward-looking statements. You should not put undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. We do not have any intention or obligation to
update forward-looking statements to reflect new information, future events or risks or the eventual outcome of the facts underlying the forward-
looking statements. New information, future events or risks may cause the forward-looking events we discuss in this prospectus supplement or the
accompanying prospectus not to occur at a time or in a manner that we expect.

any series.

Special Mandatory Redemption
If the merger has not been completed by December 31, 2016 (or such later date to which
the "End Date" under the merger agreement is extended by agreement between Aetna
and Humana) or if, prior to


S-4
Table of Contents
such date, the merger agreement is terminated, we will be obligated to redeem all of the
2019 Notes, the 2021 Notes, the 2026 Notes, the 2036 Notes and the 2046 Notes
(collectively, the "Special Mandatory Redemption Notes") at a redemption price equal
to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes,
plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the special mandatory redemption

date. The "special mandatory redemption date" means the 30th day (or if such day is not
a business day, the first business day thereafter) following the transmission of a notice of
special mandatory redemption, which shall be transmitted no later than 60 days after the
occurrence of the event triggering redemption. See "Description of the Notes--Special
Mandatory Redemption of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes."

Repurchase Upon a Change of Control
Upon the occurrence of both (1) a Change of Control (as defined in "Description of the
Notes--Repurchase Upon a Change of Control") and (2) a related downgrade of the
rating of the Notes of a series below an investment grade rating by each of the Rating
Agencies (as defined in "Description of the Notes--Repurchase Upon a Change of
Control") within a specified period, we will be required to make an offer to purchase all
of the Notes of such series at a price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the Notes
of such series, plus any accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the date of
repurchase. See "Description of the Notes--Repurchase Upon a Change of Control."

Ranking
The Notes will be our senior unsecured and unsubordinated obligations and will rank
equally with all of our other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated
indebtedness, and will be structurally subordinated to certain indebtedness assumed in
connection with our May 2013 acquisition of Coventry Health Care, Inc. ("Coventry")
and, upon closing of the merger, certain indebtedness assumed in connection with our
acquisition of Humana. See "Description of the Notes."

Additional Issuances
In the future we may, without the consent of the holders of the Notes of a series, increase
the aggregate principal amount of Notes of such series offered on the same terms and
conditions (except that the public offering price, issue date and first interest payment
date may vary), but if the additional Notes of such series are not fungible with the
originally issued Notes of such series for United States federal income tax purposes, the
additional Notes of such series will have a separate CUSIP number.

Final Prospectus Supplement
Use of Proceeds
We intend to use the estimated $12.9 billion in net proceeds after deducting
underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses from this
offering, together with cash on hand at Aetna and Humana, and an approximately $3.2
billion term loan that we expect to borrow at the time the merger is completed, to fund
the cash portion of the purchase price of the merger. If the merger is not


S-5
Table of Contents
completed, we intend to use the net proceeds of the offering of the Floating Rate Notes,
the 2018 Notes and the 2023 Notes for general corporate purposes, including the

possible payment of a termination fee under the merger agreement and repayment of a
portion of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes. See "Use of Proceeds."

Covenants
The indenture for the Notes limits our ability to consolidate with or merge with or into
any other person (other than in a merger or consolidation in which we are the surviving
person) or sell our property or assets as, or substantially as, an entirety to any person.
This covenant is subject to important qualifications and limitations. See "Description of
Debt Securities--Consolidation, Merger and Sale of Assets" in the accompanying
prospectus.

The indenture for the Notes does not restrict our ability to incur additional indebtedness.
Under the terms of the Notes, the holders of the Notes will not have the benefit of the

covenant in the base indenture for the Notes described under "Description of Debt
Securities-- Limitations on Liens on Common Stock of Principal Subsidiaries" in the
accompanying prospectus.

No Cross-Acceleration Event of Default
Under the terms of the Notes, the holders of the Notes will not have the benefit of the
cross-acceleration event of default in the base indenture for the Notes described in the
fourth bullet under "Description of Debt Securities--Events of Default and Notice
Thereof" in the accompanying prospectus.

Minimum Denominations
The Notes will be issued and may be transferred only in minimum denominations of
$2,000 and multiples of $1,000 in excess thereof.

Risk Factors
For a discussion of factors you should consider carefully before deciding to purchase
the Notes, see "Risk Factors" beginning on page S-7 of this prospectus supplement and
those risk factors incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement and the
accompanying prospectus.

Settlement
We expect that delivery of the Notes will be made against payment therefor on or about
June 9, 2016, which will be the fifth business day following the date of pricing of the
Notes (such settlement cycle being herein referred to as "T+5"). Under Rule 15c6-1
under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), trades in
the secondary market generally are required to settle in three business days, unless the
parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, purchasers of Notes
who wish to trade Notes on the date of pricing or the next succeeding business day will
be required, by virtue of the fact that the Notes initially will settle T+5, to specify an
alternate settlement cycle at the time of any such trade to prevent a failed settlement.
Purchasers of Notes who wish to trade Notes on the date of pricing or the next
succeeding business day should consult their own advisor.

RISK FACTORS
In deciding whether to purchase the Notes, you should consider carefully the risks described below, as well as the other information and data
included in or incorporated by reference into this prospectus supplement, including "Forward-Looking Information/Risk Factors" beginning on
page 42 of our 2015 Aetna Annual Report, Financial Report to Shareholders incorporated by reference into our Annual Report on Form 10-K for
the year ended December 31, 2015, any of which could delay the completion of the merger and/or cause our operating results and financial
condition to be materially adversely affected. Following completion of the merger, Aetna will also be subject to the risk factors described in Part I,
Item 1A in Humana's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, filed with the SEC, which we have filed as an exhibit
to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 and which is incorporated by reference herein.
We may be unable to redeem any or all of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes in the event of a special mandatory redemption.
If the merger has not been completed by December 31, 2016 (or such later date to which the "End Date" under the merger agreement is
extended by agreement between Aetna and Humana) or if, prior to such date, the merger agreement is terminated, we will be obligated to redeem
all of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes at a redemption price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Special Mandatory
Redemption Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the special mandatory redemption date (as defined herein). See "Description
of the Notes--Special Mandatory Redemption of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes." We are not obligated to place the proceeds of the
offering of any Notes in escrow prior to the completion of the merger or to provide a security interest in those proceeds. Accordingly, we will need
to fund any special mandatory redemption of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes using proceeds that we have voluntarily retained and from
other sources of liquidity. In the event of a special mandatory redemption, we may not have sufficient funds to purchase any or all of the Special
Mandatory Redemption Notes, which would constitute an event of default under the indenture.
In the event of a special mandatory redemption, holders of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes may not obtain their expected return
on such Notes.
If we redeem the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes pursuant to the special mandatory redemption provisions, you may not obtain your
expected return on the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes and may not be able to reinvest the proceeds from such special mandatory
redemption in an investment that results in a comparable return. In addition, as a result of the special mandatory redemption provisions of the
Special Mandatory Redemption Notes, the trading prices of the Special Mandatory Redemption Notes may not reflect the financial results of our
business or macroeconomic factors. You will have no rights under the special mandatory redemption provisions if the merger closes, nor will you
have any right to require us to repurchase your Special Mandatory Redemption Notes if, between the closing of this offering and the completion of
the merger, we experience any changes (including any material adverse changes) in our business or financial condition, or if the terms of the
merger agreement change, including in material respects.
The Notes are unsecured and will be effectively junior to our secured indebtedness to the extent of the collateral therefor.
The Notes are unsecured general obligations of Aetna. Holders of our secured indebtedness, if any, will have claims that are prior to your
claims as holders of the Notes, to the extent of the assets securing our secured indebtedness. Thus, in the event of a bankruptcy, liquidation,
dissolution, reorganization or similar proceeding, our pledged assets would be available to satisfy obligations of our secured indebtedness before
any payment could be made on the Notes. To the extent that our pledged assets cannot satisfy in full our secured indebtedness, the holders of our
secured indebtedness would have a claim for any shortfall that would rank equally in right of payment with the Notes. In any of the foregoing
events, we cannot assure you that there will be sufficient assets to pay amounts due on the Notes. As a result, holders of the Notes may receive
less, ratably, than holders of our secured indebtedness. At March 31, 2016, Aetna had no secured indebtedness.
